another lego day off

yesterday, on my day off, Caedmon and i decided to play with legos, which is a pretty regular activity around our house.  he mostly plays with the lego "guys," and you can see here what he came up with:

i, on the other hand, was hearing the voice of hank williams jr. in my head, and looking forward to monday night, so i made this:


go steelers!

I love the Toy Story 3 legos!! *sigh* Bill just put our legos back in the attic. We had to clean the house for company (see his blog post on that)

okay Legomaniac... here's my question of all lego collecting questions: how do you store them? by color, by building set, by brick size? give me some ideas b/c we're about to come into some more legos in the next few weeks!

Perhaps all the gold and black ones should be kept in a special box just for them! Just saying.

Crafty,

we have them organized into sections. we have one huge bin which we call "special" pieces, which are actually irregular pieces. we have another large bin of regular bricks (all shapes and sizes...just the normal ones). then we have a bin of just flat peices...a bin of just lego people and accessories...a bin of just wheels....a bin of just angles pieces...a bin of windows and doors...a bin of clear pieces...and a bin of construction vehicle pieces. i don't think it matters on which basis you organize, only that you organize! half of the fun (for me) is organizing them and helping the kids learn the importance of this.

wow, I just searched and found your organization response to me. That is quite an interesting and bin-filled way to organize. I'll have to think it over. I believe a FB poll is in order. thanks and I'll talk to you later.

ps I, too, like blog comments ;)

State College to Birmingham

 as some of you know, i have been working towards a goal i set at the beginning of 2020 of running 1000 miles in one calendar year.  today is the last day of september (what?!?), and so that means the year is 3/4 of the way complete, which means i should be right around the 750 mile marker.  however, i am doing better than that, as my 5 mile run today put me at 847 miles for the year, almost 100 miles ahead of schedule!  i am feeling great, enjoying the journey, and experiencing a real sense of accomplishment as i work towards this goal.   i have also enjoyed these little milestones along the way, just to see how far i've come.  as it turns out, 847 miles from State College (along the roads, not as the crow flies) would have me arriving in Birmingham, AL, right about now!  not too shabby!  only about 150 to go!

bad haircuts (for a laugh)

everybody needs to laugh.  one good way i have found to make that happen is to do a simple google image search for 'bad haircut.'  when you do so, some of the following gems show up.  thankfully, my 9th grade school picture does NOT show up.  otherwise, it would certianly make this list!  please laugh freely and without inhibition.  thank you and have a nice day. 

happy mother's day 2020

twelve years ago i started making a video of our children as a mother's day tribute to their mother, and somehow it became a tradition.  back then, our oldest son was 3 years old, and cute.  now he's 15 and, well, not so cute .  however, we have really come to love this tradition, and the time capsule of sorts that it has become.  we love looking back at each year's video, to see how we've grown and changed, and how our love for Shannon has remained constant. below is this year's video, and if you want to walk with us down memory lane, the other eleven are down there as well.  happy mother's day to all the mom's out there...you make us feel like a million bucks. 2020 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
